Hi,

I am new to internet archive. I am curious how often the archive crawls a specific website. Look like it varies on different websites.

thanks,

there is no specific schedule. if it is well linked it will have a higher likelihood of being crawled more often.

Jeff, thanks for your reply. So even some news website constantly update the page, it doesn't mean that the crawler will catch the update, right?

Another question: why does it take 6 months to transfer the storage? It is a little long...

thanks,
